Monday night is music night for many of South Gloucestershire’s most accomplished young musicians. The role of the Senior Music Centre is to take players to an advanced level with their music making by rehearsing, performing and expanding their musical experiences with expert guidance from professional musicians and educators. 

The South Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra, South Gloucestershire Youth Wind Orchestra and South Gloucestershire Youth Jazz Orchestra are the backbone of the Senior Music Centre, but there are also additional opportunities for chamber groups and solo features. 

The Wind Orchestra and Jazz Orchestra have both appeared at the National Festival of Music for Youth giving a stunning performances in Symphony Hall and the Town Hall Birmingham, and all members of Senior Centre have performed at the MfY Proms in the Royal Albert Hall. This year the Senior Centre event is being staged at state-of-the-art Redland Hall in Bristol.
